    Neuro thinks ALS, I want to believe it is Myasthenia Gravis

    Could really use your insight and direction... Knowing the ravages of ALS, I would much rather be diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis any day (even though that DX is terrible but it is at least somewhat manageable compared to ALS). I had to go into the ER today with difficulty breathing and...

    Reason for Concern? Long Sorry- New
